Re: USM vrs UTSA Facebook link and game thread!

Prediction

13.5 points is a lot to give up to a relatively unproven team in UTSA but bettors keep pushing the line upwards in Vegas. With UTSA and Southern Miss both 5-1 against the spread in their last six games, something has to give. Personally I’m pretty confident in UTSA’s ability to take advantage of Kwadra Griggs’ weaknesses. He’s already been struggling with his accuracy, missing several gimme throws against UNT last week. UTSA is coming off a bye week and Griggs will be making his first start in a truly hostile road environment (sorry ULM). The Roadrunners are currently -5.82 in turnover luck which means they’re seriously due for some fumble recoveries on defense. All that said, I’m liking the Roadrunners at home.

UTSA 34 USM 17

Can't say I agree with the notion of turnovers being a matter of luck.

You're right. UTSA -16 was actually last year's spread. It's a little narrower this year, but not much. And yeah... I wouldn't ever bet on this team either way.

They'll run it more, at least at first. If we get too far behind they'll give up on it.

Re: USM vrs UTSA Facebook link and game thread!

I’m going to change direction this day and say that USM will show up and pull one of the biggest victories since Monken left for Tampa.......don’t kid yourself, this win will be bigger than that overrated Kentucky win last season......UTSA is a good team. UTSA is No. 1 in the nation in passing yards allowed per game (121.0) eighth in rushing defense (86.0 ypg), and 10th in scoring defense (13.7 ppg). Teams have converted just 17% on third down against UTSA. We find a way to open up the passing game early and win the turnover battle with the D getting us points as well. USM 31 UTSA 21

I wonder when the last time we won as a double-digit underdog was. UAB in 2013 maybe? Tech in 2016?

UTSA will score 21 in the first quarter, at least.

We were double-digit dogs against Louisiana Polytechnic in '16. Not sure what the final line was, but we were +14 at one point.

Getting there. Still need to hook a monitor and speakers to my laptop.

Is Facebook providing the announcers? That would be funny. Dennis Miller's MNF performance would probably seem entirely profession in comparison.

Rumor is Griggs is hurt, Howard will start. Hope it's false.
